Re: big block front springs
Used to be my 350/301 SB car and later 409 "W" engine and now my 496 BB car!
If I had this to do over, I would install the adjustable, roundy-round car coil spring cans in front and then buy whatever stiff, short coils I wanted to use and adjust my ride height and be done w/ it!
And I had GM h-d BB A/C coil springs in my '67 for years and now have installed bottom stock to "clock-cut", then one coil off the bottom MOOG #5536's that I figure are now around 500 to 525 pound rate vs them stock at 488# per my cat. and my stock, F-41 option SB coil springs at like 337#'s(??).....
